Q Designs Introduces the Stylish, Elegant QBracelet: A Fashion Accessory That Recharges Your Phone

Battery Anxiety Cure for the Style-Conscious Looks Good on Your Wrist and Charges Your Devices

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - August 21, 2014) - Q Designs today announced the launch of its flagship product, the QBracelet, a stylish, lightweight jewelry piece designed for both men and women that has the ability to charge smartphones and other electronics.

Fashion meets function in the newly available QBracelet. People can cordlessly connect their devices directly to the QBracelet via a connector that lies within the bracelet's clasp. Once connected, the QBracelet is free-standing and allows for easy, unfettered phone use. Remarkably light and sleek, the QBracelet comes in two configurations, micro-usb for Android or similar devices, and an Apple Lightning connector version for Apple devices. The QBracelet's built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery offers a charge of approximately 60% depending on the device.

"The QBracelet provides a very sexy solution to a truly ubiquitous problem. Every smartphone owner worries about battery loss, and we endeavored to create a product that simply takes that worry away, effortlessly and with style," said James Kernan, Co-founder and CEO, Q Designs. "In our research, we found existing external battery solutions to be clunky, unappealing and frustrating to use, and so we set out to build a simple, beautiful alternative."

"The QBracelet has the fashionable look and feel of a jewelry piece before anything else -- even if it didn't charge your phone, it stands as a fashion accessory based on its style and design alone," said Alessandro Libani, Co-founder and COO, Q Designs. "We conceptualized the QBracelet based on the idea that every useful object should also be a beautiful object, and we believe that merging technology with fashion in smart ways will push the fashion industry forward."

Lightweight, elegant and crafted from the highest quality materials, the QBracelet premier collection is available in brushed and matte black, polished and matte silver and polished gold. The QBracelet is unisex, and comes in sizes small, medium and large. It will retail at $99, and is currently available for pre-order for $79 at Qdesigns.co. Pre-orders will ship in time for the winter holidays.
